I plan to launch a website to sell e-marketing related solutions. I have licensed some PHP-based solutions and need to create a Joomla! based website for selling it, automate payments, customize Joomla! templates and integrate the private area with a knowledge support solution and with a portal for current customers to launch the application.
I am going to provide all texts, but also images we want to appear (which will need to be integrated on the general site appearance).
The programmer will need to customize joomla! templates colors, positions, etc, create banners, adapt images, ... to accommodate the contents I will prepare.
Obviously, I am going to prepare as much as possible to have the website aligned with my business objectives, but any recommendations based on experience will be welcome.
I have tried Joomla, and a CMS must be mandatory. I have no experience with Drupal, but if the candidate think it's more adapted to the project needs, it can also be considered. But a CMS is mandatory.
It's really important to create an very attractive website. It's not as important if standard templates or intros are used or customized, but the whole site must be visually impacting but for corporate users (so on a "clean" design).
I am a one person business owner. Please, consider it on your offerings.
Thanks in advance
